IXIBIT Sponsors Creative Real Estate Solutions Event in Jeddah

IXIBIT, the world leader in Interactive 3D sales and marketing technologies for property developers, presented its new Virtual Buildings Online at the first Creative Real Estate Solutions Event at the prestigious Laylaty Ball Rooms in Jeddah.

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, August 28, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The first Creative Real Estate Solutions Event was held on Saturday, 28th August at the prestigious Laylaty Ball Rooms in Jeddah. The event, hosted by Jumara Real Estate, brought together regional leaders from many facets of the real estate sector, in a forward thinking and engaging forum.

Opened with an art exhibition from renowned Saudi photographer, Her Royal Highness Princess Reem Mohammed Al-Faisal, the event went on to cover a broad spectrum of real estate related activities ranging from finance and technology, to standards and legislation.

The president of Jumara, a member of the Real Estate Committee at the Jeddah Chamber and host of the evenings event, Shoooq Alsalaiman, advised that while the meeting was not the first of its kind, it was a new concept for services associated with this industry.

She highlighted the fact that the state has recently adopted a plan to create a million new housing units over the coming years in response to demographic challenges posed by a population growth rate that exceeds 2.3% and with 60% of the population being under the age of 40. Adding that as Saudi is about to enter a boom, now is a crucial time in which to create standards and legislation and to form a regulatory environment to ensure that the sector can generate the same successes seen in other regional markets.

For it’s part, IXIBIT impressed the assembled audience with it’s world leading Interactive Virtual Buildings, which enable potential buyers to ‘live in’ and experience the virtual property before purchase, and indeed even before construction has begun. This pioneering technology offers an incredible new touch point through which property developers can engage with clients and prospects in a manner never before possible.

IXIBIT also used the Creative Real Estate Solutions event to introduce to the Saudi market the unique and powerful marketing opportunities offered by it’s Virtual Buildings Online.

Mr Michael Bucknell, Business Development Manager for IXIBIT Middle East explained, “IXIBIT first launched into Saudi Arabia at Cityscape Jeddah earlier this year where we received an incredible response to our Virtual Building technology which brings offplan buildings ‘to life’ in a fully interactive highly realistic 3D video game style experience”

“Today, we have taken the next step and introduced our guests to the next evolution, Virtual Buildings Online. IXIBIT Virtual Buildings Online are a revolutionary breakthrough in marketing for property developers,” Mr Bucknell added.

“By combining the power of Virtual Buildings with the reach of the internet, the technology allows a potential buyer or investor in Riyadh for example, to ‘live in’ and experience a new property development being built here in Jeddah without leaving the comfort of their own home, even before construction of the real project has began.”

He concluded, “The Jumara Creative Real Estate Solutions Event has provided an excellent platform for IXIBIT to meet with members of the Jeddah real estate and property development community and to share our vision and experience in the use of virtual technology for property marketing. We look forward to working with Jumara to support local property developers in building a highly successful marketing presence.”
